Managing alcohol in pregnancy

Many clinicians tell us they don't ask about alcohol during pregnancy, as they don't know how to ask, what to advise or where to refer. In this session, we presented a case study of a woman who is drinking alcohol during pregnancy and heard the perspectives of a panel of health professionals and a biological mother.
